Country Club Membership Recruiting for the Future

By Stephann Cotton Posted in - Advertising & Media & Networking & Real Estate & Social Media on December 3rd, 2013

Today’s marketing programs for golf and country clubs must be very different compared to how we have marketed prior to the recent recession. Most clubs were originally geared towards a specific demographic and psychographic profile- the Silent Generation born between 1925 and 1942. These profiles have shifted during the downturn, which is why membership recruitment strategies must shift as well. The previously targeted buyer profile has aged, and with that the referral base has diminished. The life and future of your club depends on how well you can “young it up” to appeal to the next market. Not only will the younger market be around longer to enjoy the club, but the projected revenue stream of a 40 – 50… Read more »

Tweets of Wrath: Common Abuses of Social Media and How You Can Avoid Them

By media Posted in - Media & Public Relations & Social Media on October 17th, 2011

The rules of social media apply to all: no person, no matter how famous or talented, no company, regardless of its big brands and big income, is exempt. No exceptions.  In fact, a misuse of social mediums, such as Twitter, YouTube and Facebook, can cause more harm than having no online presence at all. Such holds true for John Mayer, one of the decade’s most popular songwriters and musicians, who used Twitter as platform for his most candid thoughts and opinions. As a result, he damaged his credibility as an artist while simultaneously offending many people. Sure, he enthusiastically exercised his right to The First Amendment—but he wants to sell records. Hence, all messaging on behalf of yourself, your brand… Read more »

First Thoughts on Google+

By media Posted in - Public Relations & Social Media on July 26th, 2011

Just as I’ve settled into the social media world on Facebook, with my thousands of pictures and conversations preserved, Google+ has to make an appearance and cause me to question my whole social media presence. Google+ confused me even more than Facebook had when I first created my profile, with it’s clean layout and simple color scheme (in comparison to Myspace), I found myself a little overwhelmed just thinking about creating a whole new internet profile. Sharing my concerns with a friend who had made his Google+ account as well, he responded with, “It is Beta right now. Chill out…Send some feedback…” So I did. One aspect I love about the new outlet is that it enables me to take… Read more »

Jump onto the Platform or Drown: Social Media Platforms

By media Posted in - Media & Public Relations & Social Media on July 11th, 2011

If you were to ask businesses across the country about market research and advertising 20 years ago, they would have said, “I think we know what people want.” Well, 20 years later they know what consumers want, and in a big way. The marketing and advertising schemes involving door-to-door sales and community events are definitely coming to a screeching halt. The internet is now the community and social platforms are now the marketplaces. As businesses develop, they understand that they can no longer afford to be one-dimensional. For every one customer in person, companies can obtain 10 at the same time via social communities online. As long as a company has a product that the right people want, they will have… Read more »

LivingSocial Buys a Few Million Friends

By media Posted in - Advertising & Media & Networking & Social Media & Uncategorized on March 28th, 2011

Hello. It’s nice to meet you. Wanna be friends? I mean life-long friends who will always need one another.The most simplistic explanation of advertising is the desire to introduce a brand to a target audience. Brands go about this by creating awareness, enticing trial, building loyalty and, hopefully, enlisting brand ambassadors to help spread the gospel. In advertising we look at people’s wants and turn them into needs. Because when I need something, I buy it. A great example of a company introducing themselves to potential customers was seen recently with LivingSocial. By now most everyone has heard of Groupon. If not for their group coupon offerings, then for their ability to decline a $6 billion buyout bid from the nice… Read more »
